This medication has no effect as far as relieving any migraines. However if I double the dose it puts me to sleep...and when I'm asleep I don't feel the pain. So in that respect, it's useful. But I don't plan to continue taking it just for the side-effect of sleep.

doesn't always help my pain. definitely have always had to take two at a time to feel relief. if I take them at the first signs of migraine, it works. but if i wait any longer it just dulls the pain temporarily and a secong dose is always needed. going to talk to my doc about something stronger.

Comment:
I have been taking Esgic Plus for a number of years and am very grateful for its effectiveness. I take them when I feel the first sign of a migrane headache.

It does not alway stop the migrane entirely but it lessens the pain so that my life isn't totally interrupted by the headaches. Occasionally, I will need t ... Show Full Comment
